Restored to all its former glory in the early 1990′s a visit to see Michelangelo’s breathtaking work of art is a must. Not far from the Sistine Chapel you will find St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican Museum. Even those without an interest in art or religion will find these sights to be awe inspiring.
The Colosseum is a reminder of Rome’s former glory and at the same time a reminder of its gory past. Suffering the ravages of time the Colosseum is still one of the great places to visit in Rome.
The former home of the infamous Nero, this site offers an audio guided tour of its massive, fresco-covered vaults and rooms galore to explore. If you listen carefully, you might even hear Nero on the fiddle!The Pantheon
A tribute to the engineering skills of the ancient Romans, the pantheon is to all intents and purposes in as good a condition today as it was in its prime. It has been in continued use since it was first built and even today it serves as a church. Built around 125 A.D. and as beautiful now as it was then.
If you need to escape the heat or just want to find an oasis of calm in a bustling city, a visit to the Villa Borghese is a must. 140 acres of gardens, aviaries and museums it is a sea of tranquility in which to recharge your batteries.
It is often said that it’s the journey and not the destination which offers the greatest pleasures. If that is true surely nowhere else is it truer than on the Spanish Steps.
These steps were actually built by the French and link some of the most lively and delightful sights of Rome. The steps wind there way up a moderately steep hill. However although their destinations are delightful equally so are the elegantly designed ancient steps. This area of Rome is even more beautiful in Spring when it is covered in Azaleas.
These are only some of the sights and sensations to be experienced in Rome. Once seen, never forgotten.
